Storyline

Warning! This synopsis contains spoilers

Bajo las estrellas (beneath the stars) features the selfish, opportunistic Benito (Alberto San Juan), a professional trumpet player barely surviving in Madrid, who returns to his home in Navarre when he learns that his father is dying. Benito reconnects with his younger brother, Lalo (Julián Villagrán) a metal sculptor, who is emotionally needy. Benito also develops a surprising bond with the Ainara (Violeta Rodríguez) the young daughter of his brothers girlfriend, Nines (Emma Suárez). He calls Ainara little piggy.

A free spirit, Benito is enraged at a television account of an ETA car bombing. While drunk he insults Basque sympathizers and is beaten up. Later a family tragedy provokes the suicide of Lalo. From this Benito chooses to abandon his music career in the big city and insists that Nines and Ainara move in with him.

I really love this movie (The last comment is just plain stupid!!.)
5 September 2008 | by jsantiagSee all my reviews

Well,I don't use to write any comments about the movies I like.But maybe some people will not watch this movie because of the only comment about it.And It would be really a pity. This movie is sad and funny at the same time,is really deep.I watch it in Spanish, so I don't know if the translation is accurate, but I'm sure many Spaniards would enjoy a lot the language that the main character use.Benito is brilliant(He is a sweet cheeky)!Is just the great example about the beauty behind some craziness.I really love this movie,I hope everybody would enjoy as much as I did. .....I can not believe how bad(wrong) the other person understood this movie....Even an alien with 6 neurons and some sensitivity would have get it.
